Here’s the Windows Live Local blog on the upgrades to Bird’s Eye.
Gary Price summarizes the upgrades:
+ Improved Tools to Navigate “Birds Eye” Imagery Using an “inset map.” (Much easier!)
Also, kudos on the next new feature that also makes Birds Eye imagery more user friendly.
You can now drag to the end of a birds eye scene and and the next Birds Eys image should appear (if available)
++ Ability to Measure Distances from Point A to Point B Using Drawing Tools: Example Here
From the blog post:
To compliment this, we’ve added a bunch of new drawing features and drawing enhancements. for instance, you can now right click on an end node of a path to continue drawing where you left off in a previous visit.
